Mimosa pigra has the potential to spread through natural grassland floodplain ecosystems and pastures, converting them into unproductive scrubland which are only able to sustain. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are systems for capturing, storing, manipulating, analyzing and displaying data with geo-reference.

GIS are comprised at least three different components: an information system on geospatial information and data, set of georeferenced or geospatial data, and a management.

The ongoing biodiversity crisis poses a grave threat to both global ecosystems and the global socio‐economy (Naidoo et al., ).Establishing and managing protected area networks (PANs) is one of the most widespread and effective actions to maintain biodiversity (Moilanen, ; Possingham, Wilson, Andelman, & Vynne, ).In this context, spatial conservation prioritization Cited by: 2.
